BuddyPress User Contact Form

The BuddyPress User Contact Form plugin allows you to let users have a contact form on their profile and get contacted by the visitors of your site.

Users can choose to turn the contact form on/off.

The integration works and requires the BuddyBoss Platform installed and activated on your website.

BuddyBoss Platform is a fork and forge of the BuddyPress plugin and bbPress plugin. Any plugin developed for the BuddyPress and bbPress plugin is supported by the BuddyBoss Platform.

You do NOT need to install the BuddyPress plugin or the bbPress plugin separately. BuddyBoss Platform acts as a replacement for both the plugins.
